GHS Board Announces Election of Garth Brokaw as Vice President

The Board of the Gates Historical Society announces election of Board member Garth Brokaw as Vice President at the Board’s January meeting.

Garth currently assists with Tours and Archives Committees.

He says, “The Hinchey Homestead is a remarkable visual cue that stimulates ones curiosity about the history of the town of Gates. The history of every town reminds of as to who we are as a community, as a nation. Every story is a treasure. I am honored to serve as the Gates Historical Society works to preserve those treasures.”
